Yeah but last time I went, I told him I was very stressed and I asked for some tablets which he could give to calm me down. Instead he sent me to a stupid psychiatrist. He'll do this again, shout at me for thinking of Shane and send me to the mental doc. Shanes not even the reason.

Is there any medicine I can buy from the chemists?

If you want to buy something your best bet is probably relaxation aromatherapy oils (eg. lavender) that you can inhale deeply and which will help your body relax. There aren't really over-the-counter medicines that will make anxiety attacks vanish. Honestly, I used to have major problems with this and I tried everything, and the most effective cure really is breathing.

I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but perhaps he's right. I really think you should go to a psychiatrist about the Shane thing - perhaps the panic attacks are connected in some way even though it's not obvious to you yet. If you get this sorted you'll be able to get on with your life without constantly thinking about him.

I suffer from anxiety and get what the orginal poster described a lot. I dont need an anxiety inducing situation to get it. I also get lots of other symptoms that are associated with it. Go and see your GP they can give you medication if you need it, ive been on some but am now off it as I didnt find it helpful. Also natural herbal remedies like Bach Rescue Remedy can help.

Just remember to slow your breathing down, deep breaths

Perhaps you could get an appointment with another doctor? At my local surgery, I had a really great doctor but he had a heart attack and was away for 6 months. The bloke who replaced him was fairly useless and used the "let it get better on its own" philosophy (no, I'm not a hypocondriac and use the doctors very rarely ), so I asked to see a different doctor instead, which was fine.

In any case, get well soon and hope it doesn't get in the way of exams.
